secretary of state with their views on kerry, benghazi, obama's foreign policy. we will be talking with fox his national security analyst k. t. mcfarland, former ambassador john bolton, and today the national rifle association exactly one week after the sandy hook school massacre has come up with a proposal for securing every school in this country, and it is such an obvious solution, so simple it immediately raises the question, why didn't anyone else think of it? well, we begin tonight with the fiscal cliff, justin days from the largest tax hike in american history was no movement toward a fiscal cliff deal more in the action in the house or senate. the responsibility now to avoid massive taxe and draconian spending cuts reting squarely on the prsident. fox news chief white house correspondent ed henry with our report. >> just as our economy is really starting to recover and starting to see optimistic signs and we have seen actually some upside to from a whole range of areas, including two from including housing, now is not the time for more self-inflicted wounds , seven not the estimate
deficiencies, that is quote. what the report said they find on benghazi. who is the senior level and will they be held accountable? >> that is why secretary of state hillary clinton must appear before our foreign affairs committee and she has promised to do so before january 15th, we're going to hold her to her word. we know she will be appearing there. it's the first step of the whole state department and obama administration accountable after this was a terrorist attack that resulted in a murder of four brave americans. we talk a lot about ambassador stevens, don't forget smith, woods and doherty, fine americans. we have to ask ourselves, why didn't the state department not heed the intelligence reports, if you read them they are so clear in telegraphing in graphic terms this consulate is surrounded by extremist elements and they would be overrun in a minute. also, why did the state department not heed repeated requests by the consulate in benghazi for security. this is an important day in american history. 9/11 how could we not properly protect the embassy, our consulate there
following, it's the fallout over that scathing report on the attack in the u.s. mission in benghazi, libya. heads are already rolling over this story, people. the release of that report by the independent panel yesterday had quite an impact. four state department officials have now been disciplined. eric boswell, the assistant secretary of diplomatic security now resigned and three other people on administrative leave. as we reported yesterday, the panel blasted the state department for, quote, grossly inadequate security at our mission there. the attacks on september 11th, you'll remember killed u.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens. it also killed three other people who were working with us at that mission. secretary of state hillary clinton has accepted full responsibility. and she sent a letter to congress saying she accepts all of the panel's 29 recommendations. joining us live from the state department. first of all, elise, lay out for me if you could the four people removed from their posts. what is the story about them? who were they? what did they do? and why did these people get
are the things that came out of the benghazi issue. that and a whole lot of blame for everybody. we have to put the blame game aside and they are figuring out what it is and get the resources. they were there. we have to make it available. >> many blamed lack of funding to the state department and specifically republican cuts to funding on the state department. in part for the benghazi department. they said this about that quote. if the state department intends to blame the long list of failures on inadequate funding perhaps they should take a closer look at the money on the climate change. culinary diplomacy programs and other projects what do you say to that? >> there are plenty of places we could make cuts. one of those areas is not in the security for the various consulates and embassies. we need to make sure the money is there. we have to get away from the blame game. there is very important information that came out of the study by the select committee that took a look at that. we need to pay attention to that. but those elements are there. adequate money for the security. make sure the m

to secretary graham talking about the secretary and the benghazi hearing. >> when her hearing date comes she should testify as current secretary of state. she should be asked, as far as i can tell there was no interview of her in preparing this report. she needs to be asked about what she knew about the deteor eighting circumstances in benghazi. >> we should say she did not appear because she is recovering from that concussion she took as a result of a fall. but have we seen the full fallout from benghazi yet? >> not yet. there's still areas that i'm sure congress is going to want to explore. and i think that senator graham sing correct, that secretary clinton should be asked questions that she apparently was not asked during the course of the investigation. and be held accountable for them. i think that she will be. i think she will testify very forthrightly and one of those issues where, you know, you said at the top of the department and not everything comes to your attention. what the report cited was xroes inadequacies in terms of leadership and management skills at that bureau level an

service. >> do you think there's anything about benghazi that would at all taint her? >> no, i don't. not a thing. no. i mean the benghazi thing, it was a mistake, a terrible thing. we don't have actually the whole story out because the other half of the story is what the cia was doing at the annex. and that part hasn't actually been released. this was an internal look at the state department. and as any good group of people do, look tough at yourself first before you look at the interconnections with the other agencies. someone else has to look at those interconnections because this panel is a panel that secretary clinton actually appointed, former joint chiefs of staff mike mullen, tom pickering, other people like this were on this panel. they looked intensively at the department. and of course you find things wrong when you look at that, and -- but the state department has been under tremendous budgetary pressure for years. and now the challenge -- and one challenge that secretary kerry is going to have is how do you measure the effectiveness of diplomacy versus the risk to your
in benghazi and if so why? >> they did overshadow it and it continues. we had a hearing this week in foreign affairs. my republican colleagues want to continue to focus on it in a way that i think is not constructive at all. the report came out of the state department. the state department accepted responsibility and said that they should have done more. at the same time my republican colleagues also want to cut the very funding that is needed to protect the embassies around the country. so i think it is disingenuous and all about attacking president obama and the way that they torpedos susan rice. i think directing their attacks at her was inappropriate and they are still talking about it. >> democratic congress woman karen bass of california thank you very much and hop haappy holidays. >>> we will hear. a second look at the first lady and the next act for chelsea clinton. you are watching msnbc. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back i
